James Lee Derrington


The victim of a shooting on Sunday has been identified by Tucson police as 50-year-old James Shultz.

Police said Shultz was shot by another man after an argument in a convenience store parking lot.

Police found Shultz inside a car when they went to a house in the 0-100 block of West King Road after reports of gunfire about 4:35 p.m. Sunday, Sgt. Maria Hawke, a Tucson Police Department spokeswoman, said Monday in a news release.

Shultz was taken to a hospital, where he died.

The shooting followed a confrontation between Shultz and another couple a few minutes earlier outside a convenience store on North Oracle Road, police said.

After the confrontation, James Lee Derrington and his companion followed Shultz to King Road, and Derrington fired at the man, who was sitting in his car. Derrington was arrested later Sunday after a Pima County Sheriff’s Department deputy found him in a desert area near North La Cholla and West Ruthrauff roads.
